Hi Vanessa

You have been a member about a week. How is it going so far. Was the first page of the How-Tos helpful or did it leave you with questions? 

When you click the green tags on your profile page, you can see if others follow that tag. Add locations, Country, County or town the more tags you add the more links to community & research options. You can find more information here:

If links do not work in email, they will work in the public comment on your profile

Any questions please ask in the comment of my page or send a private message.

Hi Vanessa, I am dealing with the same thing. 4 Family members have had DNA test and I am the only person that shows 15% Greek. I would have thought one of my children would have shown Greek.

Thank you for volunteering, we are glad that you joined us. You are now a full member of the WikiTree community, and can now start adding your family.

For helpful tips to get you on your way, please start with our New Member How-To pages .

I first started out as a rookie, just working on my immediate family members. But as I found more connections I got better at working on my tree. I think you will enjoy the experience once you get comfortable being here. I know I have! Note: If the link doesn't work in your email, you can find them in the public comments on your profile page. Feel free to work through the How-Tos at your own pace.
